Capriccio Columbus

Celebrating the Diversity of Song

Capriccio Columbus is an adult chorus of 75 accomplished vocalists, delighting audiences with a vast array of music sung in beautiful, acoustically rich venues. Whether your taste runs toward classics, jazz, sacred works or the Great American Songbook, a Capriccio Columbus concert will remind you why you love music. In addition to the primary chorus, Capriccio includes the Capriccio Youth Choir and Molto Capriccio, a jazz and pop ensemble available to provide music for special occasions.

Why we tour

  • A performance tour will bring the choir together in such a way that will make them better & stronger singers, both individually and as an ensemble.
  • D.C. is a very educational experience. Yes, many schools take groups to D.C. as 8th-graders, but our tour is framed to include experiences that school tours do not, with the added benefit of serving through performance.
  • Singers will have the honor of performing for our current service men & women, as well as those who have served in past conflicts. 
  • We will be participating in a special wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This is extremely moving & a special privilege!! 
  • Time at Six Flags to simply have fun!
  • We base CYC on our family philosophy "to bring together young singers who aspire to learn, grow and perform". Serving together with our gift of music is a very special way to enhance our family and share artistry with others. This is trip our singers will not forget.
